    All interior, including the veneers on the dash, is in excellent condition with minor normal wear cracks. The factory tool kit is stored under the glove box. Both the front and rear seats include fold-down armrests. The large R-Type trunk affords an impressive amount of cargo space, stores a spare tire, wheel cover wrench and factory jack assembly. Restored by the prior owner during the mid-2000's, this car offers originality and a fun, reliable drive.

    Exterior:
    The silver exterior paint is in excellent condition. This Bentley has standard wheels, curvilinear fenders, side extending lighted turn signals and a distinctive Bentley front grille with two large can-style headlights.

    Interior:
    In the front, red leather twin bucket seats with separate backs and adjustments. In the rear, a massive rear coach bench spans from door to door with arm and headrests. On the back of the driver's and front passenger's seats are beautiful flip-down burlwood trays. A beautiful burlwood dash houses instrumentation and a burlwood steering wheel. The spacious interior has light gray carpeting and original type overhead gray wool broadcloth headliner.

    Drivetrain:
    The Bentley right-hand drive powered by an iron-block/aluminum-head straight six-cylinder engine that runs quietly and smoothly. The transmission is a 4-speed manual that easily engages. The original type suspension is independent with front with elliptic leaf springs at the rear. Brakes are hydraulic drums at both front and rear. With a top speed in excess of 100 mph, the Bentley Saloon was the high-performance luxury sedan of its time.
